14 Parrots Arrive from Confiscation

On Saturday, 10th November, we received 14 African Grey Parrots that were confiscated near Korup National Park from a smuggler who was on his way to Nigeria. Thankfully, all of the parrots arrived safely to L.W.C. without any deaths during transport.

Currently the parrots are in the stabilization period, and we have made special housing for them in our quarantine facility.

 

Within the next few days, all of the parrots will undergo health checks.

Those who are healthy enough will join the rest of the recovering parrots in the flight cage, and any individuals in need of treatment or close observation will remain in quarantine. As soon as the parrots are healthy, have all of their primary feathers, and are able to fly, they will be released.

    Merci Limbe Wildlife Centre a Limbe d’accueillir et d’aider sans cesse les
    animaux sauvages confisqués. Grand merci au personnel qui les soigne et les traite avec beaucoup de patience et amour. Ainsi un jour ils pourront
    être remis en liberté en bonne santé. Grand, grand merci aussi a ceux qui aident a dévoiler les malfaiteurs.
